The stories surrounding the hard rock and heavy metal movement during the '80s are the stuff of legend. At no other point in time has one genre of music gained such notoriety.

In the book Tales from the Stage, we hear firsthand from Bruce Kulick, Tim "Ripper" Owens, Herman Rarebell, Eddie Trunk, Tracii Guns, and 10 other classic metal pros who take us for a roller coaster ride down the Sunset Strip, revisiting their rise to fame in the '80s-'90s, and filling us in on the status of their current careers, and lives outside of music. Their strange-but-true tales are the basis for this Classic Metal edition of Fact or Fiction.

Michael Toney, who wrote the book, told us that he took a simplistic idea and added an intimate twist. "Each of the participants have been interviewed hundreds of times," says Toney. "In order to make these interviews cutting edge, I had to get very personal. Not only do we discuss their careers in detail, we dive into their personal lives, including finances, cars, homes, drug use, groupies, and more. Most people are shocked to learn most of these guys live incredibly modest lives."
